COVID-19 vaccinations have well and truly begun, with thousands already having received their first dose. We have compiled the most relevant and current information about COVID-19 vaccine updates, resources and materials, as well as current COVID-19 affected areas and screening information.
For those of you who may not already know, there are a number of grants available which assist with sexual, domestic and family violence, infrastructure, residential, disability support and aged care worker support.
AN-ACC shadow assessments have also now begun, and while they are being conducted in the background, current funding and payment arrangements will still apply during this period.
WSCF recently held a webinar unpacking the recommendations from the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety. We discussed key points and themes to arise from the report, and spent some time answering viewer questions.
